Default UFO: The Two Sides demo released today

Ufo: The Two Sides is a multiplayer remake of the original game X-Com: Defence / Ufo: Enemy Uknown, developed by Mythos Games and MicroProse in early 90′.

Ufo tts recreates most of the original features, adding a couple of new ones, and changing ones that existed. However, the game recreates most of the features as faithfuly as possible to maintain the unrivalled gameplay of its predecessor. Although numerous other attempts have been made to recreate x-com defence, there is no (known to us) multiplayer game that lets you play full campaings (that is both geoscape and battlescape). Project has been started on 1st of march 2009. There is no known date as to when it’s going to be complete.

All games from the ufo/x-com series are property of their owners (in 2005 rights have been aquired by Take-Two), the game is still being sold, therefore original game is not ‘abandonware’ and cannot be distributed for free legally. Presently Ufo: tts uses original graphics taken from ufo 1, making it impossible to be downloaded as a complete stand alone product. The crew is currently working on remaking all the graphics, so this will not be a problem in the future.

How does this differ from "UFO 2000" which I thought was already a multiplayer version of UFO?

UFO 2000 only has the tactical mode. This also has geoscape, and intends to provide higher-resolution graphics.

..and most importantly- ufo 2000 is only an engine, which still requires the original files

while ufo two sides is a complete stand alone remake

Game works without running the extractor, as mentioned before. But to play with sounds and all graphics you will have to do it non the less. It works exactly the same as in demo, so in case of troube, check out the forum, there are already some threads that explain a bit more into how to use the extractor if it doesnt work straight out of the box.
Also, for those of you who think our countless hours of work brought you some enjoyment over the game, you can donate
